Question: I have a DUI hearing coming up in San Fernando Court. I was never read my Miranda rights. Will my case get dismissed?

Answer: Well, without seeing more of the evidence they have against you, I can not say wether or not I think your DUI case will get dismissed. But, it is likely that it won’t. The Miranda right violation would come into play to supress any statements you made to the cops after you were arrested. If you had a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher, then they would most likely move forward regardless of that fact. That is probably the case even if your BAC was a bit under 08.
